For some background, Bethany serves as the Deputy Chief of Staff for the Florida Department of Education, as well as the Executive Director for the Florida Education Foundation. As a third-generation military brat who has lived in 17 different communities from Pre-K to post-secondary, her family’s commitment to public service formed her professional ethos to produce high-quality work to improve both individuals and communities.

For the past 12 years she has been serving Florida’s communities in the private, nonprofit, and government sectors. Most recently she was a Director of Legislative Affairs for the Florida Department of Education. Previously, Bethany was Leadership Florida’s Member Services and Resource Development Manager, and before that, she was an Account Manager at a top-tier, public relations and advertising firm, The Zimmerman Agency, managing three global accounts.
